Deputy Director of Estates

Salary: £55,520 - £63,743 per annum + plus excellent benefits

Based in a beautiful 54-acre parkland campus, with historic buildings alongside modern, cutting-edge facilities, including one of the best university libraries in London, the University of Roehampton provides a close-knit community for students and an inspiring environment in which to study. The University are now at a point to appoint a new Deputy Director of Estates, a fantastic role that will join the senior management team at this wonderful educational establishment.

The role of the Deputy Director of Estates is to be responsible for the development and management of a first-class Facilities Management service, establishing quality communication mechanisms, excellent management information processes and procedures as well as delivery of excellent customer service standards to a wide customer base. A key requirement will be the ability to develop the in-house teams and deliver a strong sense of leadership, ensuring the University delivers the very best service levels and a strong engagement to cultural and behavioural change. This role is crucial to the development of the estates masterplan, a plan which will require input and support through to delivery.

The successful candidate will possess a proven track record within facilities and estates management, including delivering high levels of customer service across a similarly diverse and complex estate. You will be an adept leader, with strong people management skills who can develop effective internal and external relationships. This is a role that will suit ‘can do’ individuals with a high level of personal drive and energy.
